Ceramic items such as plates or mugs cannot be recycled in your curbside recycling cart in our High Desert and Mountain communities. If they’re free of chips or damage, REUSE them! You can donate them to a local thrift or charity store or get creative and upcycle them by turning them into a fun pot for a plant.
Once they’ve served their purpose (and re-purpose), or are damaged and not reusable, ceramics and crockery go in your garbage cart.
